Reaching us...

The publications are grouped into six themes, roughly indicating ICCMR’s areas of interest and expertise within the research teams. The boundaries between these themes are not absolute. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of ICCMR’s work, most publications can fit more than one theme, but they appear just once in the list below.

Papers published before the respective author(s) joined the centre are not listed. And so are papers submitted for publication by former members after they have left the centre.

All journal and conference papers were peer reviewed and/or refereed accordingly, unless otherwise stated.
